Is it permissible to kill ants?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com
as-salaam u alaikum Is killing of ants( makoray and chunty) haram, makruh, mubah, please clarify?


(Fatwa: 700/685=L)

According to Hadith it is allowed to kill harmful animal before it gives you harm. Therefore, harmful ants or insects can be killed, but the animals and insects which do not give any harm they should not be killed unnecessarily.
